Looking for something fun but meaningful to do as a volunteer? We have the easiest-entry project ever for you - write notes of encouragement to our students in Mali! We provide instructions and you write short notes (and add photos, stickers, etc. if you like), scan the notes and send them to us. Learn more and sign up: https://www.malirisingfdn.org/notes

Notes are just short messages to encourage our students as they work hard in school. Your notes will 1) let our students know someone is rooting for them, which is wonderful because our kids face a lot of barriers to education that make life tough, 2) will be exciting to receive for a young person in a small, remote village, and 3) provide a fun way to practice their English skills - one of 8 subjects Mali middle schoolers have to master.

The Notes of Encouragement Campaign is a great volunteer option if you are just volunteering alone or for groups such as school classes, youth groups, church groups, or community service organizations. The volunteer need is on-going, so you can volunteer for an hour or for 10 hours...it is totally up to you. This is a really fun project if you like to draw, but it is not required. The campaign is perfect for any age as long as you can write and have readable handwriting. We have found at ages 10 and up do great with the project.

Our goal with the Notes of Encouragement Campaign next school year is to welcome every Mali Rising student with a note of encouragement....help us make that happen!

About MALI RISING FOUNDATION

Location:

PO BOX 277, SALT LAKE CTY, UT 84110, US

Mission Statement

Mali Rising Foundation envisions a quality middle school education within walking distance for every child in Mali’s rural villages. We focus on middle school education as a key but weak link in the opportunities for Mali’s children to build better, healthier lives and communities. Our mission is to empower the children of Mali, West Africa by expanding and improving educational opportunities for them within their own villages. We see this education empowering children to go on to futures that improve their own lives, but also the fate of their villages and of Mali as a whole.

Description

All of our work is done in long-term partnership with small, rural villages in southern Mali. Our work focuses on three program areas. We provide children in rural villages with access to:

1) School: We build safe, sustainable schools and provide on-going partnerships for maintenance.

2) Learning: We strengthen our schools’ abilities to deliver high quality education to students.

3) Inspiration: We help our students pursue their vocational and educational futures, whatever they may be.
